British chef and restaurateur Tristan took more than four hours to make the gargantuan sandwich that stands at 1.2 feet high, is 24 inches wide and weighs in at over two stone.

For those brave enough to take on the challenge, it is estimated that it will take a whopping 10 hours to devour.

The massive snack was created to mark the launch of network’s  show ‘Man Vs Food Nation’, the latest evolution of ‘Man Vs Food’.

The new show sees food enthusiast Adam Richman travel across the U.S. recruiting residents of the city he visits to take on daring food challenges.

Nick Thorogood, managing director of Food Network EMEA says: “We wanted to create a sandwich that embodies all the things that are at the heart of the Man Vs Food Nation series - big dishes, big flavours and big challenges! The World's Meatiest Sandwich is a truly epic creation and definitely a dish Adam Richman will be proud of.”
